    Great idea Diamond!

    Love the idea Diamond! I have to say that I am so excited too as I found a piece of Fixx concert history from 1996 just recently. Photos, set list, and a bootleg cassette. I don't know if these fans are still out there or perhaps on the message board but we met at this concert where we exchanged these items. Any fan with the surname Poe? If you are out there let's get back in touch. I remember we shared a lot of the same musical interests.

    Anyhow here is my list of concerts attended no where near most of the "Fixx Legend Fans" Don't always have the resources and $$$$ to follow like the die hards. Wished I could say that I did or could. Anyhow here's what I have:

    November 14, 1996 - Club Bene' Dinner Theatre
    Route 35, South Amboy, New Jersey
    Tickets were $15.00
    The Fixx went on at 10 pm
    I think ???2 local opening bands at 8 pm I can
    remember the songs but not the bands names.


    March 23, 2005 StarLand Ballroom
    Sayreville, New Jersey
    Tickets were $13.00
    This was one of the shows that the guys were very sick
    but still gave us their all!) Opening bands were
    "Smaller then Life" and "Stereo Soul"

    July 15, 2005 Double D's (Next Door was a Gentlemen's club

    Morristown, New Jersey
    I think tickets were $15.00 I don't have my ticket
    because the person that sold us gave a"Vixen" ticket
    I guess to them it sounded like "Fixx"?????
    Opening acts and forgive me if I wreck the names
    "Plastic Army Band" and "Photo Photo"

    October 25, 2005 B.B. Kings
    New York City
    I misplaced my stuff so I will fill in these blanks later BUT
    I was thrilled to meet many of the infamous West Coast
    Fixxtures for the 1st time. Also met many from New York
    and we called it East meets West. It was a dinner
    theatre - Pricey but good! Oh yeah and 2 Baby Fixxy
    Chic were months from making their debut. Myself and
    Allicat were exposing the unborn to the greatness of
    The Fixx!

    In July of 2006 there was a concert scheduled in Point Pleasant, NJ
    but was cancelled. I don't know why but someone said a
    band member may have been hurt. Was this a rumor?????

    November 21, 2006 Nokia Theatre
    Times Square, NYC
    Don't know what the price was but another great time
    East meeting West - Cygnet, Doctor Roger,
    Allicat, and Kevcat
    I was thrilled to finally meet Heimo who came all
    way from Germany!
    All top bands - Naked Eyes, Missing Persons,
    The Knack, and of course the best saved for last
    THE FIXX! Thank you Ira for your generosity in helping
    the fans with the special treat!

    nice list flow!

    Yeah, SInce Ed has every date from 2000 til now...

    I think i'm gonna focus on just filling in the old PRE 1999 dates...

    but i soooo jealous that you were at the alarm legendary UCLA campus show!
    i still have that on vhs somewhere- but knowing MPeters, he will have it for sale on dvd real soon. think i seen the old alarm 4 times, and once with the new lineup...


    So everyone- just the OLD 1999 and older dates please...


    but sometimes the stories that go with the shows are priceless right?

    a million thanks-

    d3

    Good luck with the list Diamond. I'm sure Pariseau can help you fill in a lot of the old West Coast dates?

    As for the UCLA Alarm show. It was an amazing day. I worked on the video with the director and my brother was the stage manager. If you have the video you can see him push Martha Quinn onto the stage. lol.
    It was broadcast live all over the world that day. Near the end of the show my bro told Eddie Mac they had 4 minutes left, so they kicked into Knocking on Heaven's Door and made their own edit. As the show ended after closing credits they hit the last note 5 seconds before they went to black! Amazing. The concert was free and they were expecting 5 or 10 thousand people to show up. It ended up 25 thousand people were there.

    After the show someone introduced me to Mike Peters and I remember him saying it was one of the happiest days of his life. What a guy!

    I just recently burned my video copy onto DVD. Let me know if you want a copy.

    To The Flow - Dude you ROCK!!!!!! Not only likes the Fixx but The Alarm too. LOVED that story wished I was in your shoes that day! I only seen the old Alarm and Mike Peters solo. Is any of the original members remaining?
    I have all my Alarm music on cassettes as of yet. I have to say I am irritated because I had "Eye of te Hurricane" and my mom somehow kept it when I moved and then upon replacing it, I found it in my hubby's car and I can't get anyone to return it!!!! I swear I had a shirt from the Eclectic Folklore Tour but that went MIA too!
    I have 2 other classics from old Alarm but nothing recent. As an Alarm fan which do you recommend for me to get to update myself? Thanks

    Even though I've seen the Fixx many, many times... the only calendar date I remember specifically was my first Fixx show when they were on their Ink tour...

    May 17, 1991 - The Vic Theater, Chicago, IL

    I was so starstruck! Their bus was parked across the street from the theater and since we were second in line waiting to get in, we saw Cy and Jamie go back and forth between the bus and the theater several times... and then after the show they had a table set up and we could take our t-shirts and move down the table and get all of their autographs - probably boring for them but Cy and Adam took the time to actually look at me, smile and say hello. I was in heaven!!! Of course I still have that t-shirt... I never wore it...

    I was thinking back some more to see if I could pinpoint dates of Fixx shows I've seen... and I knew I saw them at the House of Blues in Chicago sometime in June, 1998 (sadly, a death in the family around that time made that show possible to recall) - so I did a search to try and get the exact date and I found on Mike Byrne's website a list of dates from 1997-1998:

    http://byrneweb.com/Fixx/fixx_news.html


    So, I learned that show I saw was on 6/22/98. (Also shown is the 7/17/97 date at HOB that I also attended...)

    There is even a bootleg recording of the Fixx's Meadowlands performance...however it is listed as Byrne arena. Isn't that the old basketball arena?

    Thanks yyzed for the 411! Yeah I believe Byrne arena was the basketball arena. Though it is now called Continental Arena, I still call it The Meadowlands because that's what is always was to me in the 80's concert days. Same goes for what is now PNC Arts Center used to be called Garden State Arts Center.
